Finally got to ordering a NCFM Moth 60 DS wing. Now I can explore slopes again and visit old ones with bad LZ's. There is one at Restoule Provincial Park I will try facing west over a small lake straight up over 200'. I even stopped at the New Liskeard dump there is a ridge the faces North, get ready to be chased out by the black bears though! Also I will be checking out the numerous bald hills near Sudbury. Also NW in the province is the La Cloche Mtn range accessed by Killarney or Manitoulin Island. Yeah EPP!Almost forgot, I will check out Windy Lake provincal Park Nw of Sudbury
but its probably quite forested ridge. I might get a Toyota 4runner soon so I can access more area's, will keep u posted. In the meantime get ready for Collingwood 2005, maybe I will get stupid and heave my 5M Ventus over the edge!

East Toronto --Scarbough bluffs

Kingston at fort Henry Hill

Hills at Kaldar Highway ---7 & 41

Hi Robbie, Iam from just north of Sydney (northern beaches) we have so many awesome slopes/cliffs to choose from with sea breezes 15 kts and up it spoils us....
Some of the sites you mention I had not considered. You mentioned Brighton Bluffs, Cherry Vally and Rice Lake (Trenton) which is higher and has the stronger wind? as my slope soarers need a fair bit of breeze to really perform at their best....I have not seen anywhere at Sandbanks that looks high enough for slope soarers?

Thanks for the suggested sites also

I was at BoyToyz last month close to the Missisauga landfill looks like a nice mound facing east but perhaps it is restricted access or too close to flight traffic??

I have been eyeing that location for a while now. I think they are putting a golf course on the pile of trash.
